Nestucca Angler’s and Cedar Creek Hatchery staff spawned the last egg take for the class of 2023 fry. The fry will stay in the hatch house under the care of the hatchery staff through the winter.
Here are a few pictures of the hatch boxes within the hatch house. The wood cedar covers were rebuilt by the Nestucca Anglers last winter to keep the eggs and fry in a quiet dark environment while they develop.
Thank you to all the volunteers that worked very hard this fall collecting Broodstock and with the spawning. Special thanks to the Cedar Creek Hatchery staff as their leadership and teamwork is a big part of the success of Rhoades pond Fall Chinook Broodstock Program (ODFW STEP).
Great turnout of volunteers this past morning for our second spawning of Fall Chinook Broodstock. We will continue spawning through the Fall run to get a good mix of genetics. Stay posted as updates will continue as they become available.
Our first spawning of Fall Chinook Broodstock for 2024 babies was on Oct 17th. We had a great mixture of fish for diversity of genetics. We will have several more spawning’s in the next month to catch the full run of fish.
Only Available by pre-paid PayPal orders here at Nestucca Anglers.
These Fishermans maps are discontinued and are a legacy of the Nestucca River. The Nestucca River flows through the coastal range and 57 miles later ends up at the ocean in Pacific City. This river has always given great fishing opportunities throughout the years, with 11 boat ramps/slides and lots of public bank access above tide water.
The map was developed by fishermen and their local knowledge, experience, and memories of the 1950s and 60s. To this day, these fishing holes have kept their names through generations of sons and daughters who continue to fish these waters. Most of their forefathers have since passed but fishing memories continue on.
This map will not be found on the internet and has a special meaning to the community of the Nestucca Basin. The Nestucca Anglers would like to share it with you as we continue raising Fall Chinook for the future generations to come.

If you see firefighters off duty in uniform, walk up and thank them for keeping you and your community safe.
